My husband and I travelled around Scotland for two weeks this month and stayed in many hotels and B&Bs. Water's Edge was our favorite. The house has been beautifully renovated and decorated. Our room was comfortable and luxurious, as well as immaculate, and had a big bathroom. We had beautiful weather and were able to enjoy the large balcony, with... More

We chose to stay here after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor and Water's Edge surpassed our expectations. Bill and Gill are wonderful hosts, friendly but very relaxed. We stayed two nights in room 2 and greedily drunk in the view from our balcony. Yes, the weather was dry and mostly sunny while we were there but that merely enhanced our... More

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights, holidaying on the Black Isle and watching the dolphins. It was a luxurious experience. We had a wonderful room with a fabulous, large balcony and an amazing view across the garden to the shore and over the sea. So many additional touches around the home that made everything more enjoyable. Bill and... More

Everything is said in all of the other 5 star reviews - this wonderful B&B surpasses all expectation and has to be experienced first hand. Thank you Bill and Gill - no other bath will ever be good enough for my daughter!

My favourite place to stay on our recent 12 nights away. Lovely owners, beautiful rooms, lovely views, totally gorgeous. The owners seem to have thought of everything, even a tot of whisky for you to take to bed with you if you choose. Sadly the weather turned when we arrived so we could not take advantage of the lovely verandahs... More

A very luxurious and superior bed and breakfast with lots of lovely extras such as a bowl of fruit, local whisky and shortbread and rose buds on the towels. Lovely spacious room with a large balcony with table that looked out over the Firth. Everything was immaculate. Parking is available. Very friendly and helpful owners. Fabulous breakfast, nothing was too... More

Very luxurious B&B. We had a nice large room with an excellent bathroom including victorian bath tub. The view from the balcony out to sea is beautiful and you can sit outside and enjoy the view! Parking is available off-street. Bill and Gillian did everything to ensure a relaxed stay, very good breakfast in a large room, one large table... More

I never stay in bed and breakfast accommodation, I always stay in hotels but decided to give this B & B a try when in Scotland to visit Morray Firth and watch wild dolphins. It was the best decision I could possibly have made. This accommodation is exceptional. The rooms are spacious, well equipped, immaculate and luxurious. The thing that... More

When we initially booked this I did feel it was a little pricey and more than we would normally pay but can honestly say was worth every penny, the room was clean, nicely decorated with good shower facilities. The room was well stocked and the owners were very welcoming, including cooking a lovely breakfast with plenty of choice. However the... More

Was without a doubt the best experience i have ever had in a B&B due to a whole vast package that this place offers .Have no hesitation in saying Bill&Gills hospitality is second to none,from the complementary dram to the small...
